    CHIPPEWA BURIAL GROUNDS (New Castle, Lawrence County)

    Chippewa burial mounds were disturbed by development, and the Native Americans have been seen walking their old burial grounds at night ever since, with especially heavy activity during the full moon. Sightings include four different warriors, two women, and a young child. This is a tough one to check. Chippewa's were uncommon in this area, being a midwest Great Lakes tribe. Most local Indians were Delawares or Iroquois Confederacy tribes like the Shawnees, although the ancient mounds of the Adena were found occasionally in the area. The court's out on this one

    But are the ghosts dropping any old coins?
    A gentleman farmer named Floyd
    With some of his kin was annoyed
    The boys in their youth
    Did not know the truth
    And one of his tools was destroyed

    There were no Chippewas in western PA. However, there are many Delaware villages in Lawrence Co. and northern Butler Co. Most date from the French and Indian war period. Some later villages were associated with the "Christian Indians." Most of these sites have been destroyed by mining or development. There is a Shawnee village from the French & Indian war period not far from smurf-sue. This site has never been developed. I am hoping to get permission to hunt this site.

    My guess when someone related the Story
    they couldn't remember the name of the Tribe
    but the word Chippewa was the first name to Pop up.
    So they said "Chippewas"

    So if it Exists it would Be between Southern NewCastle Lawrence County & CHIPPEWA TWP
    Beaver County


    Of course CHIPPEWA TWP could be the reason the Story teller thought of them

    New Castle is probably 20 miles north of Chippewa Twp.

    According to township histories:
    Settlement of the area known as Chippewa began when the treaty of 1795 was signed with the Chipwayanwok Indians. The name "Chippewa" is a shortened English version of an old Indian word, Chipwayanwok, which means tailskins. This name was given to the Indians who lived in this area because of the nature of their dress. The tails of animal skins formed a fringe around the outer edge of their jackets and other clothing and thus they became known as the "Tailskins" or the "Chipwayanwok" tribe.

    This sounds like mish-mashed history to me. by 1795, most Indians had been pushed out of southwest PA. There might have been a few families that lived in the area, but certainly no tribes were left here in the 1790's.
    There was a strong Seneca, Delaware and Shawnee presence in western PA, but that was 30 to 40 years earlier. there were a couple of major settlements in Beaver county in the 1740-1760's. maybe the Chipwayanwok name stems from that time but I doubt it. I spent quite a bit of time studying the western PA frontier in grad school and never heard of the chipwayanwoks.
    I find that a lot of local history about Indian tribes is based on fantasy and rumor rather than fact.
